Devotion: I See Trees of Color...

There is a time for every season under the sun!
Autumn is my favorite season, hands down! 

It makes me think of a favorite song of mine:
"What a Wonderful World"
sung by Louie Armstrong.

He sings about:
trees of green
red roses 

Skies of blue
clouds of white
Bright days
dark nights

The colors of the rainbow
the faces of people
friends shaking hands

All leading to a wonderful world!

This autumn,
in spite of the troubles and worries in this world,
I want to see:

God's wonderful world.

* The amazing spider web caught in a ray of sunlight on a misty morning

* the colored leaves that keep on giving
with crunches and piles for children to play in

* the blue skies that give us hope,
the dark, cloudy skies that help our imagination
 with shapes of creatures only we can see.

* the decorative porches and yards that warm my heart.

* the pumpkin feasts and fests, the flavors and scents

* the smells of autumn, musty leaves, 
roasting wieners and globs of melted marshmallow,
the scents of apple and spice and pumpkin delights

And so much more! 

For me, Autumn is a wonderful season
that helps me to remember:
What a Wonderful World!
